Affects of nanotechnology on foods

We have been using nanotechnology to boost the productivity of crops for the last few years to ensure that they grow faster, larger, and last longer.  Most of that technology has been used to in soil in things like fertilizer and growth enhancers.  Now the question is what kind of impact does this have on the animals and humans that feed and eat these foods that were initially affected by the nanotechnology.  To be honest it will probably take researchers years to come up with any real data to analyze the impact.

Nanotechnology & LED TV

The Nano LED is a more powerful and efficient LED solution. Besides reducing the optical loss – it is able to recover light leads to less heat built up within the diode. This allows LEDs to be packed closer together.  This also helps increase the lifespan of the light longer. Nano LEDs have a wider range of color temperature.

This technology was used in television display screens.  The technology as  resulted in a new generation of LED TVs. At first LED televisions were not real LED, they were actually LCD TVs with LED back lighting from the sides. Gradually, true LED television panels were produced.

It was nanotechnology, that gave LED television their full array of colors to work behind panels of microscopic light emitted by LEDS.  This allow light to dispersed more evenly giving the displayed picture more definition than ever before.  It also gave the picture better clarity that looked smoother.  With the nano technology, manufactures were able to make thinner television panels that were also lighter.  In due time, this technology will allow us to add lighting to tiny particles.  For example, some scientists have discover a means to install lighting particles into leaves of tress which are able to emit light at night.

Benefits

Nanotechnology is an applied science. The most important thing is that Nanotechnology research has continuously made it possible to create new technology using different techniques and tools. Nanotechnology has the potential to revolutionize the life of materials used in every sector of our lives. It helps to improve products and production processes with better techniques and new functionality that we only dreamed about in the past. In coming years, you can expect to see major impact in every industrial sectors.  Those major impacts will eventually hit the market place and enter into the consumer markets. That is when the average person like you and I will really see and feel its impact.

Electronic circuits

The United States Department of Energy believe that they have figure out a way to use nano technology to build  electric circuits and chemical sensors by controlling a fabrication technique for drawing chemical patters as small as twenty nanometers.This has allowed researchers to use an atomic force microscope tip as a pen to deposit ink molecules through molecular diffusion onto the surface.  The ability to work with such precision enable researchers to use the tool like a soldering iron which means that more nano size devices can be created.

Cataract

One of the most important sense that all human have is the ability to see.  The eye allows us to visual the world around us.  Its importance is profound.  Its also one of the abilities that begin to deteriorate as we get older.  The common age related condition affecting the eye is cataract.  Cataract is caused by alterations in the protein structure of the lens in our eyes.  As proteins form it causes the light to scattering and the lens can no longer transmit a clear picture to the retina where it can be processed and sent to the brain.  Over 40% of adult by the age of 65 have cataract.  Its the most common form of blindness.  Cataract can be treated through surgery.  The success rate of cataract surgery by a eye doctor is dependent on his or her ability to target and remove certain proteins and particulars that block the lens.

With the application of nanotechnology to the eye lens, researchers are experimenting with to target specific intracellular mechanisms within the eye.  This is allowing doctors and researchers to understand the arrangement of proteins on the lens.

Signs of autism

Here are some early warning signs that an infant may have autism.  Your baby does not cuddle with you.  He or she tends to arch their backs when they are picked up.  They may not respond to your smile or make eye contact with you.  He or she may not respond to their name or point to things that they are interested.  During their first year of life, it usually too early to diagnosis if an infant has autism or not so you have to monitor them.  If you detect the early warning sign its best that you notify your pediatrician as early as possible to get early treatment.

 

Nanomedicine

Nanomedicine iss the application of nanotechnology towards the medical field. This area of focus will some day enable doctors to treat their patients advances that were unheard of 10 years ago.  This application to the medical field includes the development of new types of sensors and analytical tools, as well as nanoscale methods of delivering therapeutic drugs or diagnosing disease. This allows researchers to abserve the application and results of their studies in unique ways.

Many of the exciting advances within nanotechnology are beginning to be harnessed by the medical field. Nanoparticles and nano-engineered substances have been used for drug delivery and similar systems have been used to target disease causing agents and tumor cells. Furthermore, nanoparticles, such as fluorescent quantum dots are beginning to be explored for advanced imaging and diagnostics.

Regenerative Medicine

One of the most exciting things to come as a result of nanobiology is regenerative medicine.  With recent advancement of stem cell research a new dimension to regenerative medicine has emerged. This area offers a wide range of clinical applications spanning from bone replacement to cancer cure. Researchers, scientists, and medical doctors are seeking for new ways to help people live their lives better.  Imagine a day when people with poor eye sight can get lens replacement.  Imagine the end to the need for a long list of liver transplants.  With regenerative medicine, the future of medicine is endless.

Future of Medicine

The combination of biology and nanotechnology is exciting.  There is no doubt about it.  Doctors are describing a day where they move from treating symptoms to generating new cures and regerating issues.  Every tissue in your body, from head to your toe can be regenerated someday.  The science will allow us to grow body parts that the human body needs in an outside environment and when needed transferred to the human body.  A spinal cord can be created with stem cells and grown in animal test or control conditions and used when a patient needs a replacement.  The technology has advanced so much that governments are now investing money.  The United States Department of Defense has allocated $20 million dollars to study whole lim generation.  Imagine what that can do to help a solider who has lost a limb in the line of battle.  Imagine the benefits and the reprucussion that will have on our everyday life.

Nanotechnology

Nanotechnlogy Is the study of manipulating and observing matter on an atomic and molecular scale.  It is a process of developing materials, device, equipement that enable medical biologist and doctors to work with cells and moleculars on a nanometer scale.  Nanotechnology enable various fields of science, mostly different fields of biology like molecular biology and organic chemistry to research and see new possibility in medicine.

These scientific developments began in the early 1980s.  Perhaps the most notable invention was the scanning tunneling microscope that started the entire process because it enable researchers to image the surface of particulars on the atomic level.  Never before was the medical field able to see particulars in such detail and to study it at those close levels.

As the science advance, the first commercial application of nanotechnology began in early 2000.   The real life effects of these technology and research is that doctors and scientist are able to reduce the size of everything things to a smaller level. The results will be endless and the benefits are the subject of speculation as the potential can be infinite.
